  1. I realized I never introduced myself, just showed up and made myself at home. Kind of par for the course, really. :biggrin:

    : obscurity7
    Age: 40
    Gender: F
    Resides: DC area, but originally from New England, which is a far more accurate representation of my personality
    Occupation/ Industry: IT (for industries ranging from defense to universities)
    Favorite brand: I like a mix of streamlined basics and things with unique twists
    - Clothes Anthropologie, Zara, Ted Baker, Maje, Athleta (Shoes: Angela Scott, Bed Stu, Korks, Pikolinos)
    - Bags Chloe, BV (otherwise why would I be here?), Longchamp, Celine, and a bunch of lesser known brands both US and global
    Hobbies: Photography! Been shooting semi-professionally for 10+ years, just not for money (hence the "semi"). Travel as often as I can. Hiking in the mountains.
    Favorite drink: Vodka tonic is my standard, but I'll happily take anything inventive with grapefruit juice.
    Favorite food: Tapas or Indian
    Favorite TV show: Gilmore Girls
    Odd things about me: Everything. :lol: I try to tone down the sarcasm because until you meet me in person, it doesn't always translate well.
    Things that scare me: Heights and spiders. Having to jump from a high place to get away from spiders would pretty much ensure I die of a heart attack on the way down.
    Current obsessions: mini Cesta, the new (?) BV73, the whole NYC subway series, the Garda...
  2. Welcome, I die for good sarcasm so let 'er rip!

  7. Welcome to BV!
  8. Username: kharris332003 (not very creative—trying to get the brainpower to think of something more creative). I used to post but have had too many life changes in the last couple of years to post so I decided to re-introduce myself.

    Age: Ha Ha!

    Gender: F

    Resides: US. I currently split my time between the San Juan mountains and Texas.

    Occupation/ Industry: Executive with major health care company

    Favorite brands:

    · Clothing: Peruvian Connection and Pure Collection for tops

    · Bags: BV--I saw my first BV bag in China many years ago and fell in love the quality. I’ve continued to refine my collection and my favorite bags are my Cervo baseball hobos.

    Hobbies: Cooking, exercise, needlepoint, surfing the internet

    Favorite drink: Coffee and demon soda

    Favorite food: Most anything

    Favorite TV show: Catastrophe, Modern Family, Endeavour

    Odd things about me: I recently realized that I wear black, blue and red color families and I only collect bags in these colors—no green, little brown and or light colors for me. After I dropped my iPad mini while trying to manage it, a small bag and dog I’m done with small bags unless I’m not taking my iPad.

    Things that scare me: The future for my children and their children including how much climate change I see in the areas where I live.

    Current obsessions: BV Large Belly and Cervo hobos to hold everything and my iPad (and I don’t care if everyone else is playing Tetris with their small bags). I’m very sad that I can no longer buy these bags new.
